New Game! The Challenge Stage!

Famitsu has gone up with its first online preview of New Game! The Challenge Stage, 5pb.’s newly announced PlayStation 4 and PS Vita training adventure game based on the New Game! anime and manga.

New Game! The Challenge Stage is set at the game development company Eagle Jump and puts players in the role of Aoba Suzukaze, who is tasked with creating add-on downloadable content for a hurriedly decided RPG epic. Training parts see players learn skills from their more experience co-workers, with parameters changing based on which co-workers you learn from. Adventure Parts will advance the story, and friendships will change based on your responses. Later on, you’ll be able to enjoy the individual episodes of the co-workers you befriended earlier on.
